BEWARE OF PHISHING EMAILS PURPORTEDLY SENT FROM SUPREME COURT
The Supreme Court would like to warn members of the public about a recent spate of phishing emails purportedly sent from the Supreme Court of Singapore, informing recipients that they are being served a letter from the Court, with the document shared via file hosting service, Dropbox Business. The phishing email is sent from firstname.lastname@example.org by the “Supreme Judiciary Council” and contains a PDF attachment that reads “GOV.SG-LETTER011822.PDF”. The emails will usually request for personal information such as name and identification details including NRIC or the FIN number of individuals.
2 Anyone who receives such an email should not respond to it nor disclose any personal or banking details to the sender. Members of the public are also strongly advised to exercise caution and not download any attachment or click on any URL link provided in the email.
3 The Judiciary does not use the @judiciary.gov.sg domain name to send emails to members of the public nor request for information to be sent via Dropbox Business. Additionally, only authorised process servers can serve legal documents. If your attendance is required in Court or if you are required to provide information, you will receive a Registrar’s Notice or correspondence from Court to inform you of this.
4 If you have a case-related query, you may contact the Supreme Court Registry by email or phone:
5 If you wish to provide any information related to such phishing emails, please call the Police Hotline at 1800-255-0000 or submit it online at www.police.gov.sg/iwitness. For advice relating to scams, you may also call the Anti-Scam Helpline (manned by the National Crime Prevention Council) at 1800-722-6688.
